    This will be my first month using the opks, I just wondered what time is best ?, on the leaflet it says around 2pm. Also my partner won't be around until cd12, is this too late or we still I with a chance ?, my cycle is 28-29 days. We were going to try the smep but will have to start at day 12 instead x

    I get my best results between 4-6pm. Best thing to do is buy loads of cheapies and do several a day for the first month you do it, then you will discover the best time for you.

    CD12 would be fine with a 28/29 day cycle as if you have a typical 14 day LP you should ov around cd 14/15. Good luck :)

    I used to do 3 x daily because FMU isnt always an accurate reading.

    I tended to get my surge evening so Id test lunch time, evening and bed time.

    Oh and make sure you hold your wee in for 4h at least if you can.

    Helps not to dilute the LH.

    I do an opk with fmu and then around 8pm - I save them so I can see it changing :) I don't ovulate until about cd19 but my cycles are around 31 days, it's different for everyone so don't write yourself off yet! :D good luck sweet! xx

    Awww thankyou ladies, I did one today but I'm only cd 4, I just wanted to see what happened, the line was very, very faint. I'm really excited to see that line get darker as the days go on. LittleDalla omg that will probably be the same as me lol.
